My baby girl is 7 months old & is suppose to do 1/4tsp/salt/daily. Ideas?! She's breastfed, so putting it in a bottle is out. I have been mixing salt w/ her applesauce (I do this all at once, every few days, instead of freshly salting it each time, you think it does anything weird to the applesauce to sit salted a few days?) but that's too much to do @ once. She's still not doing a whole lotta solids although I'm suppose to be adding the butter/oil to her solids & I guess salt, too. Do I just wing it the best I can? Anyone have success mixing salt w/ some juice or something & giving it in a syringe? TIA!

I was told to put the salt around my nipple, if I couldn't get it in my kids any other way. We put sea salt in their baths too.

my daughter was breastfed too. every morning I would pump first thing and give that to her with her vitamins and salt and zantac twice a day. I only needed to pump about 4 ounces - 2 ounces for morning bottle followed by a feeding and 2 for at night followed by a feeding. she drank it every time.

I used a 1ml syringe with saltwater and gave her little by little in her mouth while she was breastfed. She refused to accept the pumped milk from a bottle. And some times between the feedings when possible. Now I give it in her milk bottle and any other food I give her. Even salted bananas and she loved it! <img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif" border="0">

I mixed salt and oil into the applesauce I gave my baby's enzymes in before every breastfeed and I still do that now that he's 16 monthes before every meal.

My baby is breastfed too. He is 10 months now. For the first 5 months I would pump and use about 1 oz. I bought a bottle at Walgreen's called the MediBottle. I would put 1 packet of salt in with about 4ml of breast milk and the rest of the milk goes in the bottle. It is a syringe within a bottle. My son never even knew it was in there. Now, we just give him 1 packet twice a day. I do it in his applesauce and he doesn't even flinch. We do a spoonful of applesauce with salt, and the next spoonful is enzymes. We even tried in the beginning to put a pinch in each bottle, over 8 bottles of breast milk with no luck. He hated it. Good luck..the MediBottle saved us the first few months!

My daughter is bottlefed, but whenever I cant get her to finish her salt bottle i add a little salt to her rice cereal. She eats it better that way.

Hi! I'm Diane, the guess dietitian for the CF site this month. All of the suggestions are great! Here's another one that may help. If baby is teething and likes a nice cold teething ring to "munch" on, wet it slightly and put some salt on it.
